WIC Week 2019
The National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) will celebrate Women in Construction (WIC) Week March 3-9, 2019. NAWIC’s mission is to enhance the success of women in the construction industry.
The focus of WIC Week is to highlight women as a visible component of the construction industry. WIC Week provides an occasion for NAWIC’s thousands of members across the country to raise awareness of the opportunities available for women in the construction industry and to emphasize the growing role of women in the industry. It is also a time for local chapters to give back to their communities.
“Construction has less than 9% of women working in the industry, in the actual trades, it is only 3%. What better way to educate women that construction is a viable career than through NAWIC,” says Dove Sifers-Putman, CBT, the president of NAWIC. “NAWIC is an organization of women for women. It builds leaders by offering education, leadership, and professional development at the chapter, regional and national level to all women in the construction industry!"
